Sick Child- When to stay at home

School policy requests a child stay home if he or she:

- Has a fever of 100.4 degrees or higher.
     Keep your child home until his or her fever—100.4 or higher—has been gone for 24 hours without medication.

- Has been vomiting or has diarrhea.
     Keep your child home 12-24 hours after the last vomiting or diarrhea episode.

- Has symptoms that keep him or her from participating in school, such as:
     Very tired or lack of appetite.
     Cough that he or she cannot control.
     Moderate to severe headache, body aches, or earache.
     Sore throat—a minor sore throat is ok for school, but a severe sore throat could be strep throat, even if there is no fever.


For more information, or if you have questions, please contact your school nurse.
